Manufactured Home Taxes
The tax statements for manufactured homes are mailed once a year to the taxpayer around the end of March. Statutory deadline for mailing is July 15th of each year. The first half is due by August 31st and the second half is due by November 15th. If the entire amount due is $50 or less the total amount will be due on August 31st. The tax statement is mailed to the person that was the title holder on January 2nd of the year the taxes are due, they are the liable party for the entire tax year.
You can obtain tax payment information from our website by searching the Property Tax Records. Enter the parcel number or address information and wait for the tax information to appear. If you enter an address, several parcels may appear. Select the desired parcel and wait for the tax information to appear. You can obtain a copy of the tax statement on this page or for a fee by calling the Property Tax, Elections, and License Centers at (952) 361-1910.
If you sell a Manufactured Home and transfer title to the new owner, you need to bring us proof of the transfer. If not, Carver County will assume you are still the owner. Tax statements will continue to be issued in your name. Any delinquent taxes will be submitted for collection under your name to the Minnesota Department of Revenue Recapture Unit. The amount owing will become tax liens and could be deducted from any State of Minnesota refunds or lottery winnings you may have coming. Please provide Carver County with a copy of the current title so we can make sure our records are correct.
